much hype about storms sometimes. >> you know, it's the rub that we worked through last year with irene. we thought it was going to be such a big event for new york and it was a dud. it wasn't a big dud for vermont, new hampshire, new jersey, because of the flooding. but this is what we have to work through right now. this storm that looks like that, like just literally nothing, still a small category 1 hurricane, but can this morph literally into something that will have 80 to 90 mile per hour winds, put 20 inches of rain down, and cause millions of people to be without power for days and probably some for weeks. can it happen? yes. all the forecasts say that it will happen. but you know what, all the forecasts said that irene would be a worse storm than it was and it's not. everyone i'm talking to believes that this storm will be significantly more impact for new york, new jersey, maybe pennsylvania than irene was. >> it's going to be a tropical storm, right, by the time it gets up, by the time it actually hits the eastern seaboard? >> no, it will be a tropical storm briefly in here.
. during irene it was 4.4. we expect to double what we had in irene. that's the problem. that's what kicked in yesterday and that's why the mandatory evacuation order was kicked in. the storm is deep in low pressure, and we expect the wind field to push this water up through long island sound and just to give you an example. you can see what's going on here in terms of how high water is. it's below the sea wall, but it's probably going to be about a good third of the way up this pole. that brings it all the way back into the battery and probably into lower parts of manhattan as well. parts of wall street will probably flood, so we anticipate this water to be much higher. the only difference in it could be the fact that it's going to come up gradually as opposed to quick like with the storm surge. not gradual in like 20 minutes but maybe over an hour or so we see that water coming up and coming up. we see the tunnels here shut down. the brooklyn tunnels now shout done, the holland tunnel is closing at 2:00 this afternoon. that's an order from the governor. when you see things like that occur
're all so unique. i try to focus on the consequences. for the northeast, i think after last year's irene, we pretty well reminded everybody northeast has a hurricane threat. >> all right. >> they would like to reopen trading by wednesday of this week at the latest. >> do many insurance companies cover this type of sdmer. >> many don't. they don't include flood insurance, water damage. many homeowners if they look at their policies will recognize that hurricanes in many cases aren't covered. they would have to buy insurance through the government insurance for flooding and many haven't done that. we might find out there are plenty of people after this that don't have the coverage they would need. >> thank you. >>> the presidential campaigns have canceled more than a dozen events because of sandy. president obama called off appearances today in florida, ohio, and virginia. and another one tomorrow in wisconsin so he can monitor storm developments. we have more from the obama campaign from orlando. >> reporter: good morning, charlie, nornora, and viewers in the west.
, former dnc chair and vermont governor howard dean is facing off against ed conard. irene rosenfeld, the ceo of mondolez international. the markets aren't to be forgotten. at 8:30 eastern time, we will be joined by jim grant. we're going to talk about the best investing strategies for the rest of the year with him. first, let's get you up to speed on this morning's headlines. over to andrew. >>> friday we'll get the government september jobs report. could be a game changer for the election. we'll get a hint of what may be to come. the employment report coming at 8:15 eastern time. poll forecasters say the economy likely added 155,000 private payroll jobs this month. we'll bring you the number and get you instant reaction from joel prakken. in corporate news, richard schultz is pressing forward with a possible $11 billion buyout of the retailer. schultz and at least four private equity firms have reportedly started examining the books of the economy. at the same time, he is said to be negotiating individually with the pe firms on the details of how his roughly 20% stake in the compan
. >> the fear is it's going to be worse than irene. >> tonight full reports from up and down the east coast. >> it's only a matter of time as this system gets closer. >> governor martin o'malley over the battering in baltimore. and ted strickland on what the storm means for the political storm in ohio. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. sandy is expected to make landfall at this hour on the coast of new jersey. the storm is now a post tropical cyclo cyclone. the path on the northeast corridor has been slow and moving very wide. hundreds of thousands of people in coastal areas have been evacuated up and down the east coast. this is a live shot from delaware. we'll get a live update from the shoreline in just a moment. authorities say new york city and long island could get the worst of the storm surge. sea water could rise up to 11 feet. the damage from sandy was on display hundreds of feet above manhattan today. you're seeing a youtube video of a crane collapsing on the 57th street high-rise. city officials say workers would not be able to access the crane to keep it from falling.
irene hit this area a lot of people evacuated. the coast wasn't hit that hard. the bigger problem was inland. that's why [ inaudible ] behind this time but for the most -- staying behind last time but for now people are pushing out because of the danger, the high winds are obvious. we're in a very protected position, by the way, and we're going to move back if things get worse. but again, we're charting it by the hour every hour and for now, things here are under control, but again it's getting to be a very dangerous situation down here. andrea? >> i was going to ask you that exact question, ron. so you and your crew, you know what to do. but the people who are -- and this is repeating the president's appeal, what chris christie has said, mike bloomberg, the appeal to people who are refusing to evacuate because they are putting first responders in danger and as i'm looking at the pictures of you, ron, the shape of that beach along the jersey shore is never going to be the same. this is going to have to be restored in some way because the enormous erosion already is being washed aw
of the season. with memories of hurricane irene fresh on everyone's minds, hurricane companies are bracing for the worst. >> getting our resources ready, making sure the people are ready, getting everything in order. >> reporter: in maryland, batteries, radiators, and generators flew off the shelves. >> talking five or six days possibility, therefore, you got to set a plan for that. >> reporter: planning that could save lives. hurricane sandy is blamed for 21 deaths across the caribbean. in cuba, nine people were killed as sandy toppled houses, ripped off roofs, and flooded neighborhoods. in the dominican republic, flash flooding buried cars and trees under water. and in jamaica, most of the eastern part of the island remains without power, and even now, flash flooding remains a danger. >> right now, that area right there. >> reporter: now faced with news of sandy's destructive potential, those living in her path can only do their best as they prepare for the worst. >> last week we talked about the fact we hadn't had any hurricanes this year, and here we are. >> reporter: the storm surge
,000 by hurricane irene 2011 quote the largest storm related outage in our history and again, 1.2 million, pl and without electricity at this hour and we're going to keep following this for you, they had 25,000 power crews on stand by that they brought in according to pepco, the utility in washington d.c. and 25,000 men and women additional force flown in from mexico, canada, and washington state poise today dispatch the crews. charles: it's a herculean effort or a herculean task. a lot of people without power, thanks, adam. >> you've got it. charles: joining us a spokeman for con-ed, the utility company in new york city, alfonso, can you fill us in on how things are looking. >> sure thing. the updated number for people in new york city and westchester county and that number is actually 729,000 customers out throughout new york city and westchester county and we're looking at about, in manhattan, where the bulk of them are at at this point, 240,000 customers out. charles: alfonso, how does con edison assess where to go initially, to to help initially, is there a system for figuring out priori
this will be worse than hurricane irene last year. they are anticipating this will be worse. here at rehoboth beach, it's a crowded boardwalk. this is for the sea witch festival. a lot of folks coming out. they are not afraid of what's coming. they are actually anticipating that tomorrow they'll keep the festival going tomorrow, but come sunday night, they are expecting things are going to go downhill pretty quickly. monday night is when the event really happens. a lot of rain, a lot of wind. they are anticipating a lot of beach erosion here. as this storm moves further inland, they are also very concerned about the inland flooding. as this moves further northwest, it's going to collide with that cold front. that's where you get that frankenstorm coming into play. that's where it will create snow and rain further up west. >> thanh truong, good to see even with the storm looming, folks on the boardwalk love being on television. appreciate that, sir. we will have more on hurricane sandy here on msnbc. right now we turn back to the race to the white house. back to new york where richard lui has a look
is on script. and that is that this afternoon's tide will be as bad as the perfect storm '92/irene of last year. and that tonight's tide, along with the entirety of long island sound on our side, could be catastrophic. that's what we're planning for. we hope it's avoided somehow and some way, but if you look at all the surge maps, it's connecticut that will be most adversely impacted. >> yeah. and you know what? i covered connecticut for quite some time many years ago. and there are neighborhoods on the coastline that get flooded during a thunderstorm. >> yeah. >> how are you going to keep homes from getting decimated up and down the connecticut coastline if. >> listen, we've ordered evacuations or suggested ev evacuations that affect 362,000 people, one out of every ten residents of the state of connecticut. but it's the small towns and it's the big cities. it's new haven, bridge fort, stamford, norwalk, fairfield, they're all going to be adversely impacted. we're waiting to see. if this hits 11 feet with waves on top of 11 feet, we're talking about dike systems being overrun. that's the sever
decided that hurricane irene would be the obama katrina. a couple people, including newt gingrich, suggested a quick response this time was at odds with the respond." pose -- at odds with the response posed to the staff in benghazi, libya. we will have to wait to see what the response is. host: final question for you -- how was this impacting the journalists that cover the campaign? caller: one thing that we are expecting an impact on, e-mail and electricity service in the washington, d.c. area. there are contingency plans for that kind of emergency. i am not the person in charge of .hat host: bob, thank you so much for covering that force this morning. we would like to hear what you think the impact could be. bill writes in on twitter -- host: looking at some of the front pages of the newspapers as they cover the storm, this is from "the new york daily news." "shot, city braces for a monster." of the store is looking at the potential impact of the storm. "destructive potential of the storm tops the scale." bill, florida, what do you think the impact could be on campaign 2012? >>
shore. >> reporter: well, the fear is it's obviously going to be worse than irene because this storm is tracking to our south. it's going to go inland south of here. so that's going to pile the water up from now, from yesterday through today into tonight. and until the storm goes by us and gets past us on our longitude, then the winds will come back around. and that will be an offshore component of the wind. but that's not going to happen until sometime tomorrow. so in the meantime, the tide right now is trying to go out. it's not having much luck because the wind is blowing in from the northeast at 30 to 35 miles an hour. we're getting some gusts 45 miles an hour. but the worst of the storm is a long way away. we're still more than 40 # 0 miles away. when it comes in, as it gets closer, we'll have gusts as high as hurricane force. once those winds kick up over 60, you'll see the power outages ramping up exponentially. again, the high tide tonight, 8:00 to 8:30 up and down the shore. and that could be coincidental with the landfall, plus we have the full moon, the astronomical effect
people, customers, without power in new jersey now as after hurricane irene a year ago and gives you a sense of the depth of the problem here. 60% of the state does not have power. and again, it's going to take a while. yes, there is some frustration but i think people are understanding that this is a really severe calamity that hit this place and you can see along the jersey shore places like this, a beach front property, a restaurant obliterated and what president obama and governor christie are seeing as they fly up and down the shoreline. we saw marine one go by in a convoy with helicopters about ten minutes ago and making their rounds. but i don't think a lot of people expect a lot from the federal government in the short term. >> yeah. >> right now people are just trying to deal with their immediate needs, moving in with neighbors, staying with friends. we have heard reports that some utility companies are talking about perhaps turning off water services, for example, because there could be contamination in the system. people are hunkering down and the work is just beginning. i
irene, goes by, the wind goes to the west even though it's strong to the west. it blows everything out. in this particular case, the wind keeps coming in from the southeast. >> yeah. all right. so the next thing i want to ask in terms of what -- for the people that didn't leave and heed the warning of governor cuomo in new york, governor kristchris kristi in new jersey, there a chance their homes could be below water. >> yeah. they could be below water for quite a while. what will happen is the tide tries to go out, and the wind will keep trying to stop the tietide from going out. it's a y dangerous situation. one of the things i got real upset with and i talked to you yesterday for quite a while about the whole situation is not putting the hurricane warning in effect because people think oh, it's a big nor'easter coming. big deal. we've gone through big nor'easters before. when the hurricane warning is put in effect because you have a hurricane coming, it's a very different story. my suggestion is once you've named that storm, you leave the name and the class fakings is important. >>
didn't see a whole lot of lights on. a few stayed because irene wasn't so bad. they're going to take their chances on sandy. mayor bloomberg says that's the worst thing you can do, because when you get in trouble and call for help, you're not only endangering your life, you you endanger the life of the emergency responder who comes to help you. chris, back to you. >> they have a lot of shelters set up. anne thompson, thank you so much for the update. >>> we should mention in sports the san francisco giants are world series champs for the second time in three years. they beat the detroit tigers 4-3 in game four last night. a sweep of the series. >>> back in manhattan sandy shut down the stock market. this is the first time this has happened since 9/11. mandy drury is here. could be closed tomorrow i understand. >> that's right, chris. if the nyse is closed tomorrow as well, that's the first time since 1888 that a weather-related event has caused a two-day shutdown. the last time was a blizzard that left drifts as high as 40 feet in the streets of new york city. chris, there have been
outages. they had hundreds of thousands of people without power during irene last year. they expect the same this year, probably even worse. they are thinking maybe as many as 600,000 without power for days to come. again the surge is really going to be problem here. we'll see that later in the evening and into tomorrow. matt? >> we spoke to connecticut's governor daniel malloy earlier this morning. he said this storm is one of the biggest threats to human life in his state in years. i began by asking governor malloy what worries him specifically about sandy. >> it's the next two tides. could experience tides this afternoon at about what the perfect storm was. tonight's tide during the nighttime hours could be twice that, and that's our biggest worry. if that happens it really is catastrophic. the amount of damage and loss of property is going to be extreme. we've been talking about it for days. we've prepared. we have people trying places. we have equipment in the right places. really we're waiting to see what mother nature throws at us. let's be clear. this storm is staying on scr
in the republican party is trying to do that. unlike when some people immediately decided that hurricane irene would be the obama katrina. a couple people, including newt gingrich, suggested a quick response this time was at odds with the respond." pose -- at odds with the response posed to the staff in benghazi, libya. we will have to wait to see what the response is. host: final question for you -- how was this impacting the journalists that cover the campaign? caller: one thing that we are expecting an impact on, e-mail and electricity service in the washington, d.c. area. there are contingency plans for that kind of emergency. i am not the person in charge of that. we're going to continue to do our coverage as long as it is safe to do sohost: bob, thank you so much for covering that force this -- before us morning. we would like to hear what you think the impact could be. bill writes in on twitter -- host: looking at some of the front pages of the newspapers as they cover the storm, this is from "the new york daily news." "shot, city braces for a monster." -- "shut, the city braces for a monster
. if i have to look at what was done in the aftermath of irene just as an example i think people were generally pleased with -- you know, with the results and with fema. i know a lot of times they get beat up because obviously when somebody comes in the middle of a disaster, you know, there's a lot of decisions that have to be made on the spot and sometimes they don't seem to be the right ones but i think overall fema does a good job. >> bill: are they responsive when you contact them regarding particular problems in your district? >> oh, absolutely. and we're going to really need them after this storm. no question about that. the other thing i should mention, too, is that when we do a lot of the beach replenishment projects or other federal projects with the army corps i think people don't realize a lot of it is -- you know, is preventives. in other words, in a place like seabright or monmouth beach if you didn't have the sand, the hurricane's consequences would be a lot worse. >> bill: right. >> so it is also preve
they know the drill. thanks to hurricane irene last year. >> w actually got engaged here last year. and the storm came in last year. we had to leave early. now we're here. we got married on our honeymoon. and the storm came in again. >> some luck. so far no evacuation orders have been issued for the town. our own erika gonzalez is in rehoboth and caught up with the "today" show's al roker who says sandy is a storm we'll be talking about for a while. >> you have to be prepared for a lot of rain and you have to be prepared for a lot of wind. i think you got to be prepared for a storm surge and if you're not along the coast don't think you're out of the woods either because, you know, the parts of inland maryland, virginia, pennsylvania, all going to see effects from this. so i think this is a storm that could be really one we'll be talking about for years to come. >> next the arrangements you may want to make now. >> we'll also take your questions on facebook and twitter. send them to us right now. use the hash tag sandy d.c. we'll try to get to as many as possible. >> storm team 4 i

, would be more dangerous than even irene from last year. it turned out to be a huge flood problem for virginia, vermont and new jersey. i know it's late in the season, but the water is still warm enough to make this storm generate. it went -- i was watch it last night in bed on my -- i was tweeting from 8:00 until 12:00, and this thing went from an 80-mile-per-hour storm to about a 115 as it left jamaica and slammed into cuba, and that was only in five hours. there's a lot of potential. >> is it true that a late storm as well could be a lot deadlier, a lot more dangerous late in the season? >> i would say an earlier storm, october 10th, that peak day with the waters the warmest would be the most concerning, but i think people probably take it less serious. oh, come on, it's november. it can't happen. there's not going to be anything bad. if you let your guard down and think that it's out of season, you're wrong. look at the waves there. is that miami? somewhere. look at that. the way it's crashing on. that's why you can't even be on the sea wall. you need to be behind it and in th

. just like tropical storm irene did last year. the difference is, this is drawing in a lot of cold air from canada. it could produce up to a foot of snow in parts of west virginia, ohio, and pennsylvania. so we're talking about not only a tropical system with tons of rain and flooding and massive power outages but snow as well. the effects of this could be felt for weeks. >> okay, al roker, many thanks for that. >>> our colleagues at the weather channel are following this storm closely as well. we're going have a live report from meteorologist julie martin coming your way at the top of the hour. >>> from there to politics now, ten days to go until the election. today in his weekly address president obama's emphasizing the progress made four years after the wall street crisis. >> our businesses have added more than 5 million new jobs. the unemployment rate has fallen to the lowest level since i took office. home values are ride rising again and our assembly lines are humming once more. >> mitt romney and paul ryan are looking to gain momentum holding a rally last night in canton. >> i w
are open as of now. expectations are almost 12 foot storm surge. irene at 9 in comparison just to give you an idea of what we're looking at here. we're also starting to see some twitter pictures come in of the main fishing pier in ocean city, maryland being washed away. pictures of atlantic city underwater. it is a little tricky for us to put emphasis on campaign developments knowing what's to come weatherwise and that obviously is of the utmost concern especially in people safety but we do only have eight days left. that means weighing the impact on everything from early voting of course now to access and power to the polling places on election day itself. it is harder to get out the vote door knocking when people can't get out and about. the millions of dollars that conservatives have saved up to bombard the airways in the homestretch may be waste if the no one can watch tv. and even the news itself is going to be all storm all the time at least until the worst seemed to have past. it will change the nature of th
